Lil Yachty – Priorities (Teenage Emotions Album)

When I say so
My priorities are fucked
They was geekin’ off Xans
But these bitches was so horny
I walked up in the party
And fuck the rules
I ain’t got no time to date on you
Lil’ shawty get wet from that Lil Yachty poster
Bro, I had to go in
I could not stop lookin’ at those big breasts
And fuck the rules
I’ma cheat on my girlfriend
K. Swisha
When I say so
When I say so
But these bitches was so horny
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ like a roller coaster
And fuck the rules
Feelin’ like I’m the man
Who so loyal for some sluts
Before we fuck I gotta lay down a coaster

[Pre-Chorus]
When I say so

[Intro]
My priorities are fucked
She my step sister, so I guess that’s incest
I walked up in the party
Ayy, fuck my college school, they some haters
I said fuck school
Got a bougie yellow bitch, look like vanilla wafers
Let the party around 3
When I say so
I’ma do whatever I want to
My priorities are fucked
[Verse 1]
That wasn’t even the plan
[Chorus]
My priorities are fucked
Let the party around 3
Make your next move, your best life’s a game of chess
I’ma do whatever I want to
(Pipe up)
Feelin’ like I’m the man
My priorities are fucked
And fuck the rules
Let me gon’ and see what that money do
Rather write raps than write a paper
My priorities are fucked
And fuck the rules
My priorities are fucked
Niggas claimin’ that they that they know me but like, really do they?
(Pipe up)

They was geekin’ off Xans
A 2:30 call is a call for a jiggaboo
I’ma cheat on my girlfriend
I said fuck school
When I say so
My priorities are fucked
[Pre-Chorus]

I’ma do whatever I want to
I’ma do whatever I want to
I walked up in the party
[Pre-Chorus]
I said fuck school
Choppa style, she can’t argue with dick in her mouth
My priorities are fucked
Every bitch wanted to fuck me
My priorities are fucked

I said fuck school
Feelin’ like I’m the man
[Chorus]
My priorities are fucked
[Chorus]
I’ma do whatever I want to
Every bitch wanted to fuck me
My priorities are fucked
I don’t point no fingers, I can do no jury duty
My priorities are fucked
I said fuck school
Who so loyal for some sluts
But these bitches was so horny
(Pipe up)
That wasn’t even the plan
My priorities are fucked
My priorities are fucked
[Verse 2]
Said you strugglin’ from the top view at my penthouse
Let the party around 3
My priorities are fucked
Who so loyal for some sluts
I said fuck school

My priorities are fucked
Every bitch wanted to fuck me
My priorities are fucked
Bro, I had to go in
I’ma cheat on my girlfriend

They was geekin’ off Xans

Watching him do that let me know Lil Boat could do anything
They don’t want me

I can’t keep fuckin’ round with these bitches, these bitches just want my money
I can’t keep fuckin’ round with these hoes, chicks, these bitches, they just want money
[Post-Chorus]
I can’t keep fuckin’ round with these bitches who don’t want nothin’ more than my money
Now I got bitches out in Singapore

Lil Yachty – Made Of Glass (Teenage Emotions Album)

[Verse 3]
But when you leave it feels like I’ll never see you never

[Chorus]
You don’t even see me here Am I made up of glass?
[Chorus]

I’m in love with the girl who loves somebody else
I’m losing it, I’m losing it for you
I keep cutting off girls ’cause I wanna be with you but you don’t even see me
Am I made up of glass? Do you see straight through me?
I know you like me much, but I think you’re afraid of the world
When you laying in my arms it feels like forever
[Verse 2]
They don’t like us much, but I’d be proud to call you my girl
I’m losing it, I’m losing it for you

Parted like Moses, I love watching your poses
I’m losing my mind, I’m losing myself
You just like a different dude and I’m so in love with you
Do you see straight through me? Am I made up of glass?
You a soldier, baby, nothing like that boy, he’s a jokester
Am I made up of glass? Do you see straight through me?
Do you not want to be what we once talked about?
I’m losing it, I’m losing it for you
You just like a different dude and I’m so in love with you
They posers on the internet, talking ’bout us both, they just vultures
That was the best time we had spent together
I’m losing my mind, I’m losing myself
I keep cutting off girls ’cause I wanna be with you but you don’t even see me
I do a million things for your attention and you don’t even notice, no

You just like a different dude and I’m so in love with you
I do a million things for your attention and you don’t even notice, no

[Pre-Chorus]

Do you not want to be what we once talked about?
I know I ask for much but today, could you rock out those curls?
Red roses, gold skin with your hair
Do you not want to be what we once talked about?

I want your panties wet, wetter than before you were soaker
That was the first time we had spent together
And she doesn’t pay attention to anybody else
[Verse 1]
[Chorus]
The time we just spent together
Am I made up of glass? You don’t even see me here
[Pre-Chorus]

Lil Yachty – Momma (Outro) (Teenage Emotions Album)

She used to work hard for us
I will honor you today and always
The love of my life
Now I gotta make sure that you good
Smartest girl I know
You sacrificed so much to raise a child
Where would I be without my momma?
Pretty enough that if she forgot her wallet at a checkout counter she could pay off her tab with her looks
I wanna see you happy, see you smile
You’ve given me more than any man has ever given me
The best thing that’s ever happened to me

Get you a new house with the finest wood
[Verse 2: Lil Yachty]
My momma
Cop you a new whip with the best leather
‘Cause we up on them
She can take pics for her Instagram like let the world know her son great
Woah damn no girl come before my momma
She had one son but she treat my best friend like he come under her too
I love you more than life itself

The best man ever
I need my momma
That’s my momma
All you’ve given me, I can’t repay
[Verse 1: Sonyae Elise]
I love you more than the air I breathe
Where would I go without my momma?
I wanna see you happy, see you smile
And let the world know what she ate

More precious than diamonds and pearls, my momma
Since day one made sure I was straight since pajamas
All you’ve given me, I can’t repay
Rub it all in their face like ha
My best friend, first lady of my life my momma
[Outro: Lil Yachty’s Momma]
I don’t know, I mean you’re my first born
My best friend
My best friend, queen of my world, my momma
[Intro]
Diamond tennis bracelets with cashmere sweaters
I love my momma
That’s my momma
That’s my momma
My best friend, queen of my world, my momma
More precious than diamonds and pearls, my momma
There’s no question I’m doing anything for my momma
C’mon, baby
I take her where she can live great, she gonna eat steak off her plate
You sacrificed so much to raise a child
The lady of my life
Now I break my back for her
Lil Boat
I will honor you today and always

Rockxana – Ares feat. Super Ed versuri

Rockxana, aprinde lumina ta roșie,
Io nu sunt Sting de la Poliție,
Dar te voi lega ca-n Fifty Shades
Stai, stai Roxano! Nu știu ce crezi sau cum o vezi tu
Dar mie nu îmi pasă ce zice restul
Lumii despre tine, eu nu am reguli
Citesc în ochii tăi ceva-i ce-i sigur
Nici tu nu ai, și spune-mi dacă greșesc
O să stăm cu siguranță așa cum îmi doresc
Știu c-o să stai, fără să te mituiesc
Chiar dacă legal vorbind cam așa e firesc
Ro-ro-roxana îmi dai versuri-lyrics.info
Cu viziuni ce să mai
Ești o damă din Rai
Venită aici pe Splai
Te-ntinzi ușor pe covor, uită toată drama
Camera e goală, hai alungă toată teama
Și pansează-mi rana ca și un bandaj
Știu că dacă n-o faci intri în sevraj
Și poc poc poc poc, explodează totul sub tavanul mic
E foc foc foc foc, roșu ca rubinul tău dacă știi ce zic
Îmi dai putere să-nfrunt tot, când fac ce vreau și nu zici nimic
Ești ca cireașa de pe tort, te vor toți, dar nu mulți te-ating
Deci baby poți să fi sigură că te fac să te simți ca într-un paradis
Paradisul roșu, paradisul nostru, paradisul interzisss. Că am banii la mine. Din tavan Campioano, îi las să curgă pe tine,
Să danseze pe tine ca Michael in Billie Jean
Tu nu ești dragostea mea, dar financiar te susțin, mamă! Versuri Ares

Scâncește și țipă! Versuri Ares – Rockxana
Rockxana, aprinde lumina ta roșie,
Io nu sunt Sting de la Poliție,
Dar te voi lega ca-n Fifty Shades
Stai, stai Roxano! Face mare SHOW, cu scena ei mică
D-asta nu-i zice pasăre, ci-o cheamă păsarică
Limba noastră-i o comoară, în adancuri să o lingă
Las banii să adie pe ea și ei se aștern s-o ningă
Iubito fi mândră de ce faci, udă-mă să mă stingă! (x2) Că am banii la mine. Din tavan Campioano, îi las să curgă pe tine,
Să danseze pe tine ca Michael in Billie Jean
Tu nu ești dragostea mea, dar financiar te susțin, mamă! Mamă, mami țiplă! Că pun tot ce am pe ce ai între craci
Și-ti las gura să mă înghită
Suge-o cum a supt-o Ramona.

Abencoada por Deus – Menor feat. Buchecha letra

Letra Menor – Abencoada por Deus
Lembra daquela mina
Que você botou pra ralar
Que te pediu uma chance
E você ria
Pois é exatamente a mesma
Que tu não para de ligar
Olha o mundo girando
Quem diria
Eu sei que ela tá mudada
Mas vou tentar te recordar
Daquela que você deixou de lado
Iludiu a mina, mancada
Mas ela cansou de esperar
Não é museu pra viver de passado. (Abencoada por Deus)

Million-dollar donation revives dream for the ‘Heart Bus’

(ABC News) Australian Story

By Megan Mackander and Kristine Taylor

Updated

May 29, 2017 20:30:20

Video: Dr Gomes is planning a second Heart Bus to visit at least five more rural towns.
A family member told Australian Story they were inspired to donate after hearing Dr Gomes speak at an event last year.The donation was in memory of their late father who also had a love for the bush and believed doctors were vital to the survival of country towns.”They told me their father had also wanted to try and get doctors out into the bush,” Dr Gomes said.”He’d spent years trying to create a program but ran into brick walls.”Almost 3,000 people have been through the doors of the “Heart Bus”, as itis known by local communities, since launching in October 2014.Wheels in motion for second truckPlans are now on the drawing board for a second truck which will enable Dr Gomes to widen the scope of services on offer beyond heart health. It’s going to get bigger, it’s going to get more expansive, and it can’t be ignored,” he said. A million-dollar mystery donation will help a mobile heart clinic roll into more rural towns, bringing specialist doctors and lifesaving expertise to the bush. It’s a lack of specialists.”Heart Bus made a ‘big difference’

The blueprints include consulting rooms for a gastroenterologist, urologist and endocrinologist, and a surgery for minor operations.The second clinic is set to launch in January 2018 and will add another five towns to its Queensland route and possibly head interstate.Dr Gomes estimated it would cost $1 million to build the truck and $1 million a year to run the program.The six-figure donation came after an application to partner with the Queensland Government was rejected last year.Dr Gomes said he was disappointed the Government could not see value in supporting the program long-term.”Why wouldn’t the Government be more interested?

Dr Gomes says it costs $1 million to build a new cardiology clinic. (Australian Story: Anthony Sines)
City-country health care inequalityDr Gomes realised there was a city-country divide in health care when he was a trainee doctor on rural rotations in western Queensland.People living in the country are 44 per cent more likely to die of heart disease than people living in the city, and in some remote areas the figure can rise as high as 63 per cent, according to the National Heart Foundation.”You can’t look at the gap and say the way to address that is to maintain the status quo, because whatever already exists, clearly we need to be doing more,” he said.”We’re not talking about a lack of butchers, bakers, candlestick-makers. The donation was made by a family who wishes to remain anonymous. I lie in bed and I stare at the ceiling trying to work out reasons why,” Dr Gomes said.Public health programs ‘better value for money’In a statement to Australian Story, Queensland Health’s Dr John Wakefield said the Government did not routinely fund private specialist outreach services.”Private providers operate their businesses of their own accord under Medicare funding arrangements without ongoing State Government funding,” the deputy-director general of Clinical Excellence Division said.The State Government chipped in $250,000 to the Heart of Australia at its inception.Dr Wakefield said the current public health system provider model was “better value for money” and that it already offered public cardiology and endocrinology services to patients in rural Queensland.But Dr Gomes said there have never been any services similar to what the “Heart Bus” provided in rural Queensland.”The State Government says they can provide this system cheaper; the problem is they don’t, otherwise they would be there,” he said.”If there is a cheaper alternative I’d like to know what it is.”

Key points:Second ‘Heart Bus’ set to hit the road by start of 2018 with variety of specialists on boardQueensland Government says public programs “better value for money”Almost 3,000 patients have been through the clinic across 12 towns
The Heart of Australia is a cardiology clinic which operates off the back of a truck.It is the brainchild of engineer-turned-cardiologist Dr Rolf Gomes, who equipped the 25-metre truck with all the specialist gear of a city practice.The semi-trailer blazes a trail through outback Queensland, travelling 8,000 kilometres each month visiting 12 regional towns.The Brisbane-based doctor said the million-dollar donation came out of the blue and would now allow him to put a second mobile clinic on the road to reach more people in more towns.”Not every day does someone offer you a million dollars to build your dream,” Dr Gomes said.”I nearly fell off the back of my chair.”

Jimmy Smith runs cattle outside of Winton, which is a 16-hour drive from any Brisbane specialist.Mr Smith had not seen a cardiologist in 16 years since having a stent inserted.After a consultation at the “Heart Bus” he was referred to Brisbane for further testing.A blockage was discovered and is now controlled with medication and regular monitoring.Almost 12 months on, Mr Smith said he was “feeling pretty good”.”We are still in drought and it’s hard to get away,” he said.”Having it [the Heart Bus] right there on the doorstep has made a big difference to me.”Mr Gomes said it was his long-term plan to take the “Heart Bus” nationally.”The truth is the program is here to stay one way or the other.

‘Don’t ask how astronauts go to toilet’: Adelaide cadets to hook up with space station

Adelaide air cadets are to speak with the space station crew for just the second time. (Twitter: Chris Hadfield)
We can talk about whatever else we want to talk about.”The link on Wednesday evening, between the aviation museum at Port Adelaide and the space station, will be precise in duration, Mr Lelliott said.”[The space station] will actually be over Santa Rosa in America, we’ll have 10 minutes and 38 seconds exactly,” he said.”We’re going to use what’s called a telebridge, which is like a speaker phone really.”A phone line is plugged into it, NASA will ring us at the museum, once that is established they will transfer our call to a ground station at Santa Rosa, they will convert the signal into radio and beam it up to the space station.”

Photo:
The space station astronauts will be over Santa Rosa in the US at the time of this week’s hook-up. When Australian Air League cadets get a rare chance to speak with the crew of the orbiting International Space Station this week, they will have a precise window of time for their conversation.Organiser Marc Lelliott said it was important they did not waste time with well-worn questions of the space adventurers.”The only thing NASA says is to get the cadets not to ask how the astronauts go to the toilet,” he laughed.”Apparently that’s one of the more common ones. (Twitter: Chris Hadfield)
Questions culled to final listCadets across Adelaide submitted potential questions, they were judged and culled into a final list and this was formally submitted, to give the astronauts and cosmonauts a chance to prepare answers and make best use of the window of time.Mr Lelliott said the hook-up would be truly international.”You’ve got 20 Australian cadets, a French astronaut who will be in the Russian segment of the space station, in orbit over America,” he said.Cadets also spoke with the space station team back in 2014.”That worked reasonably well, the antenna they used on the station was partially covered by a solar panel so the signal wasn’t perfect,” Mr Lelliott said.”But it was good enough to hear the astronaut and he was able to hear the cadets.”This week’s hook-up starts at 7:05pm ACST on Wednesday.

Jean therapy: Making paper from recycled denim

Sarah May Sadler sorts paper seed tiles into gardening packages for children. Paperworks is a not-for-profit social enterprise that uses the art of papermaking to engage marginalised people and those with special needs. External Link:

Paperworks: Making paper from denim
To do that, the denim is cut into 1.5cm x 1.5cm pieces (which takes about four hours of cutting), soaked overnight and then put in a Hollander beater for up to six hours. Photo:
Allyscha Thomson started making paper two years ago. “It literally shears the blocks of textile apart into a really stringy pulp, very soft to the touch, opaque,” Ms Pieterse said.”Then you use a mould and deckle to make a sheet of paper by dipping it into the vat of pulpy water … “It is entirely volunteer-based and we’re able to use the funds that come from that project to actually continue the recycling at Paperworks,” Ms Pieterse said.”We do have a longer-term vision though of being able to offer workplace opportunities there for students with special needs.”

Photo:
Susanna Pieterse says the Hollander beater literally shears the blocks of textile apart. “We’re really at the stage where we’d prefer people to buy the product to give us a reason to continue doing the recycling instead of donating more jeans,” Ms Pieterse said. “I like the feel of it [the pulp] when it’s in the water, and making paper from scratch is what I like to do,” she said. “We were using cardboard and recycled paper in the first few sessions but it was unforgiving and had lacklustre results,” chief executive Susanna Pieterse said. (ABC Radio Canberra: Penny Travers)
Allyscha Thomson, 24, started making paper two years ago after her former school teacher suggested the idea. (ABC Radio Canberra: Penny Travers)
The denim paper is crafted into cards, notebook covers and seed tiles.”We make paper leaves that are seeded with vegetables to encourage children to take an interest in healthy foods and eat what they grow,” Ms Pieterse said. “We started looking into using textiles and became aware of the great need to recycle textiles — more than 80 per cent of denim actually ends up in landfill.”We found the longer fibres of textiles helped the paper hold together better.”We now only use recycled textiles because recycled paper can go into mainstream recycling anyway.”How denim becomes paperTwo pairs of jeans can make about 40 sheets of paper. Photo:
It takes about a week for the pulp to dry. “We’re hoping that some schools will take this up as a fundraiser instead of the annual chocolate drive.”Recycling art and craft supplies Denim is not the only thing Paperworks is recycling.Volunteers are repackaging and selling donated art and craft supplies from the Paper and the Works shop at the back of Canberra’s re-use facility The Green Shed. In a small studio in Canberra, artisans are recycling unwanted denim jeans and jackets by turning them into paper. (ABC Radio Canberra: Penny Travers)
Denim paper turned into cards and seed tiles Paperworks employs three part-time artisans from disadvantaged backgrounds who make the paper.Sarah May Sadler, 57, is one of the artisans who has been crafting paper products for five years.”It’s very relaxing, it’s quite meditative; with a lot of the things that we do they’re kind of repetitive and you can sort of meditate as you’re going along,” she said. Canberrans can donate art and craft supplies to the Paper and the Works project by clearly marking the items as “For Paperworks” and dropping them off at The Green Shed. (ABC Radio Canberra: Penny Travers)
But to do that, Paperworks needs more volunteers. and then lay that wet sheet on top of a felt and the paper is left to dry, which can take about a week.”Paperworks used to run an annual jeans drive but currently has a full stock of denim. “We are really grateful to still be here since 2009; there are many times when we thought we wouldn’t be around and I think it’s only thanks to the Canberra community’s support over all these years,” Ms Pieterse said.

“There’s a bit of a turnover depending on what sort of visas they’re here on.”

Mining engineer Morteza Abyazani speaks Persian as his first language, and attends classes to gain a better understanding of Australian slang. How bonzer is your knowledge of Australian slang? He organised a regular meeting of his Persian-speaking friends and family at the local library and that is where he met native English speaker, Dave Wilson.”I could hear them chattering amongst each other, and they were looking through these booklets that they had in front of them,” he said.Mr Wilson said, as he listened, he began to recognise the very unique vernacular and phrases they were trying to understand.”I turned and said to them at one point, ‘Are you trying to learn Australian slang?'” he said.Feeling like an outsiderWithout someone to explain the meaning and context of the foreign and often strange phrases, the group was struggling.”Do a uey, or maybe, that’s a ute,” said Mr Abyazani, remembering learning words that were once foreign.”What’s ute? We took a gander at the Macquarie Aussie Slang Dictionary to pull out the most true blue lingo we could find. What does it mean?”A ute — is that a car?”He said missing those nuances of the language fed a feeling of exclusion.”Because I couldn’t communicate, I tried to, but all the time I missed some part of the communication,” he said.So Mr Wilson joined the group, and since August 2014, working their way through the textbook, he has been helping newcomers to Kalgoorlie understand and use Australian slang.”We’ve had people come from Africa, India, China, Korea, France, Italy, we’ve got some Filipinos here now, we’ve got a couple of Punjabis here,” he said.

Mr Abyazani said the process of learning the roots of Australian slang broadened his understanding of the people and the place.”It’s not only slang for language, because it’s really about Australia, so we can really understand what is the culture of Australia, how we have to communicate with other people,” he said.Mr Wilson said the process of reviewing a language and culture he already knew well, has given him cause to reflect.”It’s made me aware of how isolated we are, the origins of the language, initially coming from the origins of convicts, from England and the Gentry or the governorship,” he said. Mr Abyazani is a mining engineer from a Iran and a confident English speaker, who once worked as a Persian translator before arriving in WA.”The way that I learned the English is different,” he said.Mr Abyazani said it was communicating with local workmates that he used to find challenging.”They said, ‘Are you going to join us this arvo?'”I said, ‘what is this arvo?’ “What is that, where is that?”Approaching the challenge as he would an engineering project, Mr Abyazani sourced a textbook on Australian slang, and set to work on the exercises. If I’ve done a Harold Holt, what did I do? “[They] were the two classes that arrived here, then you had the settlers living in great isolation.”They weren’t academics, they weren’t people who’d been to school, they were people who needed to communicate effectively both for their entertainment and efficiency.”The history of our slang language has come from those people.”Three years later, Mr Abyazani said earning the local slang had changed how he felt in his new home of Kalgoorlie.”Sometimes you feel yourself, you are not part of this community, you cannot stay anymore,” he said.”But now no, I don’t have this feeling, I really feel myself, being part of Australia.”
An Australian slang class is helping newcomers to Kalgoorlie understand local phrases and feel more at home.Every week, a small group of people from a variety of non-English speaking countries, meet in the Kalgoorlie library to learn about Aussie slang.”I couldn’t understand what they’re really talking about,” said Morteza Abyazani, remembering when he first arrived in the Western Australian Goldfields five years ago.

“My chronological age is 71.”I consider myself as a fully fledged senior who is retired but fully attached to the community.”He said staying active, challenging himself mentally and contributing to his community made him feel much younger.”I feel as though my body is still working at the age of about 55.”‘Just open your eyes’In some ways Mr Rivas and his wife are unlike other retirees; in other ways they share similarities.The couple are avid travellers, making regular trips to the Philippines and exploring the world. They also enjoy spending a quiet morning at home with their children and grandchildren, or pottering about the garden on a warm tropical afternoon.Where they differ is how much they give back to the community they call home.

Mr Rivas says volunteering his time to teach children the wonders of science makes him feel young at heart. Science means so much to retired teacher John Rivas that he refuses to give up educating kids on its wonders.Mr Rivas taught high school science for more than 35 years before he extinguished the flame on his classroom career in 2010.But upon retiring he found himself unable to contain his passion for the subject.”We live in an environment that is always interacting with science.”We live, we sleep, we eat, we breathe with science and that’s the kind of message I like to tell — we are living in a scientific world, use it and engage with it.”

Mr Rivas’s enthusiasm for science education soon led him back to the schoolyard, although this time around the children under his tutelage were much smaller.For the past four years he and his wife Edna, also a former teacher, have run an annual science exhibition at Jingili Primary School in Darwin’s northern suburbs.”Retirement for me does not mean it’s the end of the line for community engagement or helping promote science and science education to those who need it most — children,” Mr Rivas said.And as much as the children enjoy taking part in the science exhibitions, it is clear Mr and Mrs Rivas enjoy them too.”We’ve pledged to keep coming back for as long as our health will allow us,” he said.Only as old as you feelIn true scientific fashion, Mr Rivas described himself in the way a palaeontologist might describe a fossil.

Mr Rivas said every retiree deserved to take time for themselves as reward for a lifetime of work.And while he begrudged nobody for doing so, he said he hoped his and his wife’s efforts might serve as some form of inspiration to other seniors.”It’s fun to travel but when you come home, re-engage in the community and put something back in.”Give even the littlest bit of service to whatever sector of the community you would like to serve, but serve it with gusto, serve it with passion and serve it with dedication and commitment.”Just open your eyes — there’s a lot of community activities out there.”

Meet the woman buying houses for the homeless

“I guess we felt shocked and I suppose a bit guilty — we didn’t realise how bad the housing situation in Melbourne was,” she told ABC Radio Melbourne’s Rafael Epstein. Meet Melbourne’s rough sleepers Some of the hundreds of people sleeping rough on Melbourne’s streets talk about how they ended up there. She said she had spoken to youth housing providers and government organisations about how to best administer the properties, which are still awaiting settlement.”It’s very much a work in progress.” Homeless as a teenager

Jessica Pearce was shocked by the sight of people sleeping rough in Flinders Street. “The streets were lined with people sleeping on mattresses or on the ground.”I guess it just touched me and I thought that maybe there was something that we could do.”‘I wanted him to have stable accommodation’ The couple spent two nights wandering the streets handing out $20 and $50 notes to those sleeping rough and talking with them about their circumstances. “I wanted him to have stable accommodation for the children.”Four for the price of oneMs Pearce had recently finished paying off her own mortgage and was looking to buy an investment property in inner Melbourne.But after her experience she decided to buy houses in cheaper areas, and two weeks ago purchased four houses “all about three or four days apart from each other”. The properties in Corio, Lara, Morwell and Moe will provide either short-term crisis accommodation or a stable, long-term residence. (ABC News: James Hancock)
Just why Ms Pearce has taken such a generous step might be explained by her own history.Three days before she turned 16 her mother and stepfather asked her to leave home. A woman has been so moved by the sight of Melbourne’s homeless people that she has started buying houses for them.Jessica Pearce was staying at a hotel in Flinders Street with her partner over the Christmas period when they came face to face with city’s homeless problem. The propertiesLara: Short-term accommodation for people with children who are on a waitlist for housingCorio: Accommodation for homeless young people studying or in an apprenticeshipMorwell: Short-term crisis accommodation for up to three monthsMoe: Apartment providing permanent accommodation for up to three young people
“The price that I would have paid for one house in town was the same as buying four in cheaper areas,” she said. “I’d already been working at Hungry Jack’s so I just took on some extra hours.”It’s funny, at the time I didn’t think much of it, I kind of took it in my stride.”She confided in her maths teacher, with whom she had a good relationship, and he set her up in stable accommodation.”He was connected with a house in Elwood that provided accommodation for young people who wanted to stay in school, which is probably a lot of the reason that I had the idea of providing a house like that myself now.”Ms Pearce now has a successful business and her four children “have not really wanted for anything”.”I’ve probably got it better than most people,” she said. The house in Lara, for example, will be provided for up to three months to people with children who are on a waiting list for long-term accommodation.”It’s quite a lovely house, it’s very much like you would imagine a grandmother’s house to be,” Ms Pearce said. One of those people was a man who was sleeping on the steps of St Paul’s Cathedral.”He had a two- and a three-year-old who were staying with his ex-partner and he wasn’t going to have access to them because he didn’t have somewhere to live,” Ms Pearce said.Ms Pearce and her partner invited him back to their hotel for two nights, before putting him up at a motel for a month.

Upcycling second hand clothes

Ms Musch, who is a student at Billy Blue College of Design in Brisbane, will soon travel to Stockholm and Milan to continue her fashion studies.”It’s a controversial thing to be sustainable in the fashion industry.”I still come up against battles, but I’m going to try and learn as much as I can.”I love exploring sustainable and ethical fashion and I hope that it could possibly lead to a potential label.” Photo:
